Unique ability to see musical songwriters perform their own songs cabaret style

See it if you want to see charming/laid-back explanation/presentation of unknown songs; some songs revelations, other should remain unknown

Don't see it if /since quality of performance depends on the performance chops of songwriters/some fine performers, others should leave performing to pros

Entertaining, Relevant, Profound, Great writing, Great singing

See it if Great opportunity for the public to see the songwriters stripped down. New work, simply presented, let's the music and lyrics fly. Well done

Don't see it if You'd rather go for anything full out or plot driven. But still, strong change of pace, opportunity for real feedback. Nice refreshments.
